PERSEUS WAY readily dismissed his rivals at Leicester when sent off a short-priced favourite, putting 24 lengths between himself and the runner-up. Despite lacking fluency at some of his obstacles, the Gary Moore-trained gelding looked a smart prospect and gets the nod to continue his ascendancy. Medyaf was by no means disgraced behind the selection at this venue last month and could close the gap. Jackpot De Choisel was an expensive purchase and warrants consideration on his stable debut.
Prediction : 1st Perseus Way 2nd Medyaf 3rd Jackpot De Choisel

MONMIRAL was by no means disgraced behind Jonbon on his chasing debut at Warwick, pulling nine lengths clear of a smart sort in West Cork in third. After being outpaced three from home, the Grade 1-winning hurdler did the best of his work late on and can get off the mark over fences now stepping up in trip. Kissesforkatie readily dismissed her rivals at Fontwell and the Jeremy Scott-trained mare can follow him home. Art Approval took third on his first couple of appearances over the larger obstacles but may take a step forward, although he also held an entry here on Friday.
Prediction : 1st Monmiral 2nd Kissesforkatie 3rd Art Approval

In this fascinating contest, marginal preference is for DOLOS, who chased home top-class stablemate Greaneteen in the Haldon Gold Cup. Although no match for the winner, the Paul Nicholls-trained gelding pulled 14 lengths clear of the third and now competes off 1lb lower. Last year's winner Editeur Du Gite boasts an impressive record at this venue and demands the utmost respect, especially if getting an easy lead. The handicapper has loosened his grip on Third Time Lucki and he may be able to bounce back from a lacklustre effort at Ascot.
Prediction : 1st Dolos 2nd Editeur Du Gite 3rd Third Time Lucki

STOLEN SILVER was still in contention when unseating as favourite in the Paddy Power last month but assuming he avoids any similar misfortune, the usually consistent seven-year-old holds a solid chance of adding to his C&D win gained in a Grade 2 in April. Il Ridoto is the pick of Paul Nicholls' two intended runners and is respected given the yard's flying form at present. Evan Williams sent out last year's winner of this race and his Coconut Splash is also considered. War Lord has mixed it with top company since going over fences and commands attention too.
Prediction : 1st Stolen Silver 2nd Il Ridoto 3rd Coconut Splash

EPATANTE has the best chance at the weights and while she was no match for superstar stable companion Constitutional Hill when bidding for a Fighting Fifth hat-trick at Newcastle a fortnight ago, she is fancied to be a lot sharper for that run and is likely to be hard to beat. Nigel Twiston-Davies has sent out five winners of this race, including 12 months ago, and has another lively contender in the shape of Greatwood winner I Like To Move It. Knappers Hill adds further spice to an intriguing clash.
Prediction : 1st Epatante 2nd I Like To Move It 3rd Knappers Hill

Despite just half a dozen runners lining up, there is no shortage of nice types on show and slight preference is for OUTLAW PETER. Paul Nicholls' charge was a bloodless 19-length scorer over 2m5f at Exeter, following on from his second in the Persian War, and a repeat of either effort could see him take the beating, with the extra yardage unlikely to be an issue. Weveallbeencaught stayed on into third when pitched into a Grade 2 on his hurdling bow over shorter at the November meeting here, while Thomas Mor is two from two over timber and shouldn't be dismissed lightly.
Prediction : 1st Outlaw Peter 2nd Weveallbeencaught 3rd Thomas Mor

THEATRE GLORY unseated her rider in the Gerry Feilden on her comeback, but she signed off last season with a comfortable triumph in a Listed affair over C&D and should take the beating if there are no mishaps on this occasion, with Nico de Boinville back on board. Martello Sky is likely to appreciate this drop in trip and class after her Listed second at Kempton over 3m. Unbeaten mare Lady Adare is having her first run since February and her first in handicap company, and she completes the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Theatre Glory 2nd Martello Sky 3rd Lady Adare
